New Owner at Tong Tong Kim Bab Inc.

One of my fave casual Flushing Korean places which actually made the book, has changed hands. Was in today for some takeout kimchee bokkumbap and mantoo and noticed a few red-ribbon wrapped trees and the absence of the adorable chubby little older woman behind the register. Turns out she sold the place two weeks ago. New owner was extremly sweet and made my bokkumbab without any spam or eggs as per my request and insisted I sit and have a free drink whilst waiting. She was smart to keep the two middle aged Korean women who did all the cooking for the previous owner - they rock!

Menu is identical and quality seems to have remained the same. Bokkumbab was extra spicy which was super!

I wonder if Maru, the new shop across the street, is giving them a run for their money.
